West Coast Havanese Forum meetup??

Hi everybody!

I would be very interested in coordinating a West Coast meetup for any Havanese Forum members who could make it, and apparently a couple other people are interested as well, so I thought I would just put the idea out there.

I am thinking some time this summer, over a weekend maybe? I am also thinking mid-west-coast, maybe somewhere in Oregon, so that it minimizes travel time all around for anybody close to the west coast (whether north or south or inland). It would be grand to meet where there is a dog-friendly sandy beach for both the dogs and ourselves to play!, but that's just an idea. Another idea is to have it maybe near a public dog-friendly camping site, so that anybody who doesn't want to pay for a hotel and who doesn't mind camping, can bring a tent...

The 2 main concerns of course would be how many people can and would come if they can, and what the best time/place would be for everybody that might be interested. I would be happy to coordinate things, i.e., figure all of these questions out, if people could let me know if they would come, and what days they could or couldn't make it (and also if they have any preferences or suggestions as to where we should all meet). But first, I just would like to know how much interest there would be

So, like I said, I am just throwing this idea out there. If you like the idea, please give me your ideas and suggestions about any of the topics above, or just say yea, maybe, or nay, or anything else you can think of . You can also email me at [email protected].

If it looks like there might be enough interest, I will start planning in earnest

(tentatively)

wahooooo!! I was just on my tillie bath thread and said, hmmmm, maybe we should start a new thread! LOL Heather you were WAY ahead of me!!

So, I'm in! Definitly summer time! Not sure about the camping part as I have a bad back and knee so can't camp on the ground... but if there were cabins or yurts or something that would work!!

I hope all the west coasters chime in, it would be great to finally meet everyone and get to know each other in real life AND over a whole weekend!!!! yippiiiiieeee!

We are about 2 hrs south of Ashland, in California.

I think that is an awesome idea! I would love to meet you all and it would be so great to see Ozzie playing with other havs! There are so many places along the coast that have both campsites, yurts, and cabins. I'm sure we could come up with something that would make most people happy. I know Ozzie loves the beach and is a great camper. Please keep me posted if you decide on a location or you need any help.

We might be able to make it -- even if it is in Oregon. I'd much prefer a nice sunny day (weekend), and, as you may well know it rains in Oregon quite a bit so that makes long range planning kinda difficult. Last September some friends and I spent a very fun weekend in the Lower Harbor in Brookings, Or. and it's just North of the Ca. border. As I recall the hotel was dog friendly, but don't know if it would be friendly enough to accommodate a full house of dog lovers and their pets....

It will be interesting to see where this leads...

Cheers!

Yay! I have heard FANTASTIC things about Florence! We need to do some research to see where is dog friendly... and honestly I am kind of internally freaking out about the beach and Tillie. LOL we will definitly need a good hotel because I forsee a LOT of baths on this trip!

I've been to Florence several times (Clam Chowder at Mo's!) but it is for sure a two day trip there for me -- well at least a full day and a half. So I'd need a whole 5 days to go up, spend a day and come back - not impossible cuz I'm retired, but less exciting than not being able to bring Lynda with me (who's still working --- well at least still working for the moment...). That being said. I've never stayed in Florence, so I have no knowledge of what might be available there.

As to the Brookings hotel -- I do believe it was a Best Western, but would have to go back to verify. I remember it was kinda pricey too. :-(

Cheers!
